Jonesy #1, written by Sam Humphries with art by Caitlyn Rose Boyle, will drop in comic shops on February 10th.

From the official issue description:

This February, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is smitten with Jonesy, the new limited series from heartbreakers Sam Humphries (Legendary Star-Lord, Weirdworld) and Caitlin Rose Boyle (Buck n’ Lou & the Night Crew). Perfect for fans of Giant Days, Scott Pilgrim, and the new Archie, this lighthearted comedy features a teen cupid in plaid who misuses her “love powers” as she tries to find her place in high school.

Jonesy is one of those comics that just brings a smile to your face,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Sam and Caitlin have created a fresh, relatable group of characters that fit right into the BOOM! Box family alongside Lumberjanes and Giant Days, which means we can promise hilarious shenanigans, a great story, and beautiful art!”

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows: she has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone, with anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong.

Jonesy, like Giant Days, is the kind of series that would have kept me, as a teen, running back to the comic shop every month,” said Editor Shannon Watters. “I’m so pleased that BOOM! Box is able to bring it to all of you.”

Jonesy #1 (of 4) arrives in comic shops on February 10th
